"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 cup unsalted butter, melted, cooled
1 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel

1. Heat oven to 375F. Line 2 to 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, sugar and brown sugar. Whisk in eggs, vanilla and 1 tablespoon lemon peel until well-blended. In another medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into butter mixture.

3. In small bowl, whisk together all glaze ingredients.

4. Use #16 cookie scoop or 1/4 cup measure to scoop dough; place on baking sheets, leaving at least 3 inches between cookies. Flatten gently into 3-inch rounds.

5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until just golden brown around edges but still pale in center and slightly soft. Remove from oven; immediately slide parchment paper onto wire racks. Cool 5 to 10 minutes. Brush glaze over cookies; cool completely.
